My Travel Wish list

“Live with no excuses and travel with no regrets”

Yesterday I was talking to soletmeexplore about her bucket list, 101 places that are on her bucket list. Many of them that she has already been too and it inspired me to start writing down my own travel wish list, places I want to visit.

For those already a regular on our Facebook page and blog would have heard of our “Travel dream board” that we created with our children, full of places they want to travel, and yes, Disney is a focal point. But there are many places I want to visit that I haven’t added to the board.

As a traveller, and a Photographer some of the places on my travel wish list I have been to in the past, well before I had my DSLR camera, with my Olympus 3MB camera in hand, some I have been to and managed to take photos.

Together with my children, we have created a Travel Wish List, a list of places we want to visit or revisit.

Places around Australia

There is something magical about Australia, it really is a unique place. Australia is the world’s largest island, covering 7.692 million km. It is home to many different climates from the mild temperatures of Tasmania, to the tropical heat of the Daintree. It really is an amazing place to visit. We have been to the most northern tip of Australia’s mainland, Cape York. Travelled the Nullarbor, with the longest straight stretch of road in the country 146.6km without a bend or turn.
